We are committed to ensuring that all staff take their breaks.
If you work more than six hours in one stretch you are entitled to a rest break of 20 minutes through the Working Time Regulations.
Rest breaks can include tea breaks, lunch breaks or other short breaks during the day. It is not just because of the regulations that breaks are important, it's because they are good for you too.
Taking a break gives you a chance to take a breather, replenish your energy levels by eating or having a drink, physically resting or taking a mental break.
